Building on the success of last years Cube Reaction Hybrid and with a higher level of spec than the Performance and Pro models, the 2021 Cube Reaction Hybrid Race is the hard tail can build confidence in new riders, while still providing seasoned riders with a rewarding platform to really hit the trails with everything they have.
Sadly, this popular bike is now sold out but you can find the 2022 version here.
I was skeptical I could ascend a local very steep hill sitting down but I did and in torrentially wet conditions. The ability to have traction and ‘accelerate’ through hairpin bends whilst ascending is unique, as is the lower center of gravity which feel much safer and more controlled on steeper descents. All in all it is an amazing piece of kit.
With the latest Generation 4 Bosch Performance CX drive system, a 625Wh battery and a newly increased 85Nm of torque the Cube Reaction Hybrid Race 625 is ready to take you much further and faster in 2021.
Along with the rest of the Reaction line-up, its equipped with Schwalbe's 2.6" Smart Sam Active tyres. The new Reaction Hybrid Race is set up perfectly for riders who find themselves frequently switching between tarmac and dirt and they perform effortlessly on both.
The innermost section features a continual tread band for low rolling resistance on tarmac, while the shoulders of the tyre have wider spacing and more aggressive tread to optimise off road grip during cornering and braking.
With the larger volume of Plus size tyres, they can be run at higher pressures for faster rolling and lower resistance on-road, or alternatively at lower pressures for comfort and a wider footprint to improve grip when off-road.
New for 2021, Cube are fitting the Race variant of the Reaction Hybrid with the latest 100mm Rockshox Judy TK Air forks. Taking many of its design ques from the award winning Pike series, they're adjustable for rider weight, giving an almost infinite level of adjustment to maintain ground contact.
The 2021 Reaction Hybrid Race 625 comes with Shimano's MT420 hydraulic disc brakes. Despite their super low weight, they offer solid performance from the 4 piston setup with easy reach adjustment. This new Race model comes with 203mm front and 180mm rear brake rotors.
With 4 piston calipers and a great range of adjustability, you can be confident that the Shimano M420 brake system will bring you to a stop just as quickly as this bike takes off!
As well as providing incredible braking force, hydraulic brakes are incredibly reliable and require almost no maintenance aside from an occasional brake pad change.
Cube have used their own 29" EX30 factory rims onto the Reaction Hybrid Race for 2021 with Shimano boost hubs.. These 30mm wide rims offer riders the ability to fit an ever increasing choice of wider tyres to suit their riding style.
The wider Shimano boost hubs improve bracing angles for the wheels spokes helping to improve wheel strength and stiffness.
Cube have designed the Reaction Hybrid Race 625 to be thoroughly up to date for 2021, with internal routing for all cables including the option for a stealth dropper post. The Bosch PowerTube 625Wh battery has been mounted inside the frame to further protect it and enhance the frame aesthetics.
The 2021 Cube Reaction Hybrid Race 625 eBike is equipped with Shimano's new XT M8100 12-speed rear derailleur.
The Shimano XT M8100 setup along with 10-51t Deore M6100 cassette offer an incredibly wide ratio gearing, allowing you to take on even the most severe of inclines, while not compromising top speed on flat ground.
The M8100 derailleur features Shimano's Shadow Plus one way friction operated clutch to reduce unwanted chain movement, helping to keep things both quiet and efficient over rougher terrain.
The 2021 Cube Reaction Hybrid Race 625 with its upgraded spec over the rest of the Cube Reaction line-up is a bike in a class of its own at its price point. It's combined specification, performance and value against it competitors in the 2021 model year will make them highly popular on the XC trails.
The new Cube Reaction Hybrid Race 625 2021 eBike features the latest Gen 4 Bosch Performance CX motor.
The 250w Generation 4 CX system provides 85Nm of torque & peaks at 500w! It packs a serious punch, offering up to 340% assistance in turbo mode. Featuring 4 levels of assistance, eMTB mode (also newly updated for 2021) allows the user to set off in one assistance mode and the system itself will determine the assistance offered.
The Cube Reaction Hybrid Race 625 features the latest and largest capacity Bosch 625Wh battery technology for 2021 and is located inside the down tube for security and to improve frame aesthetics.
As with previous generations, Cube have equipped the Bosch Purion display, a revised smaller dash that offers quick vision of essential parameters whilst occupying a minimal amount of cockpit space and not distracting attention.
